"Palatine: Hut of Romulus" Palatine Hill Tip by illumina

Palatine Hill, Rome: 76 reviews and 148 photos


Beyond the gardens, in the south-west corner of the hill, excavations have revealed the oldest traces of a settlement in the city (8th century BC). The floors and post-holes of iron age huts are cut into the bedrock - the largest hut plan measures 5 by 3.5m, a slightly oval rectangle.
